Baladas criminales

EscuchandoListening to...



Mojo Magazine - Murder Ballads - Julio 2017

'Murder Ballads' (literalmente 'Baladas de asesinatos') es el álbum más exitoso hasta la fecha de Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, en parte gracias a su dueto con Kylie Minogue. Se inspiraba en una larga tradición de canciones sobre sucesos criminales y presentaba algunas versiones propias de personajes aparecidos en la tradición del folclore musical además de otras historias de su propia creación. Este cedé, que se vendía con la revista musical Mojo, recogía algunas canciones populares que la banda recreó en distintas etapas de su trayectoria, con esa temática como nexo común.
'Murder Ballads' (1995) is the most successful album to this date by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, partly thanks to a duet with Kylie Minogue. It was inspired, as its plain title reflects, by a long tradition of songs about criminal events and presented some particular versions of traditional characters that previously appeared in musical folklore but also other stories of their own creation. This CD, which was sold with the musical magazine Mojo, collected some popular songs that the band recreated at different stages of their career, with that theme as a common link.
